Opioid addiction has ruined the life of many people and has affected countless families worldwide. In opioid addiction, the users feel a powerful urge to use opium and other narcotics, where they may even become dependent on them. Continuous abuse of these substances, in the long run, affects the user’s day-to-day function and impairs them. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, over 2.5 million Americans suffer from opioid abuse disorder, which attributes to more than 28000 instances of death in 2014. While there are many medicines and addiction programs available for treating opioid addiction, not all people prefer to join these programs or take the help of a clinician. For those people, kratom bali may be an excellent place to start.
What is Bali Kratom?
The Kratom plant is a member of the coffee family plants and is mainly found in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia. The botanical name of kratom is Mitragyna Speciosa, and its leaves contain Mitragynine, a psychotropic compound. Depending on the origin and other factors, Kratom leaf has many variants. Bali Kratom is one of them, mainly originating from Indonesia. This variant is reddish due to the red leaf vein. The compound, Mitragynine, has opioid-like properties, affecting the opioid receptors present in the brain. Users claim that the Bali variant is the most “opioid-like” and can help fight opioid addiction.
How does Bali kratom treat opioid addiction?
As already mentioned, the Bali kratom is the most opioid-like; it helps in a smooth withdrawal. After prolonged use, if anyone stops using the substance, they face withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal can be very unpleasant, and sometimes, the user also shows violent tendencies. To counter these violent tendencies and a smooth withdrawal, many people use Bali kratom.
In addition to being natural, Kratom is also said to increase energy, sociability, and alertness. When Mitragynine interacts with the opioid receptors of the brain, it tricks them into producing similar effects to opioids. Due to this, your brain thinks it has got what it wanted, and the withdrawal symptoms don’t take place at all.
Mitragynine and the other minor compound, 7-alpha-hydroxy mitragynine, interact with the different brain receptors and produce stimulating effects. Although the stimulating effects only occur if the user uses Kratom in a low dosage. In higher dosage, Bali or any other variant produces sedating effects.
How to use Bali kratom to treat Opioid Addiction?
Kratom leaves are either taken directly or brewed like tea. With the rising popularity of Kratom, it has become available in many forms. You can find Bali Kratom in many edible forms like tablets, capsules, gummies, tinctures, and extracts. People also take Kratom with food; however, taking kratom powder on an empty stomach can cause nausea, so it’s better to take Kratom after breakfast or a light meal.
Effects of Kratom also depend on how you take it. For example, Kratom capsules take more time to show effects than Kratom powder. Similarly, the effects of smoking Kratom leaves are short-lived but powerful compared to other modes.
You can easily find Bali kratom in head shops, agricultural markets, gas stations, shops selling CBD products, and on different websites online. There isn’t many scientific data available on the preferred mode of Kratom ingestion.
Dosage Guidelines for Opioid Addiction Treatment:
As of now, there isn’t much research available on the dosage of Bali Kratom for treating Opioid addiction. Usually, any dose depends upon the user’s sex, physique, weight, height, and, most importantly, tolerance level. Additionally, the method of ingestion also plays a vital role in showing the effects. For example, Kratom extract is far more potent than Kratom powder. According to a study, 5 grams of Kratom thrice a day is enough for experiencing effects. A dose of more than 15 grams per day may also cause sedation, including the risk of other severe side effects.
Is Kratom Legal?
Currently, Kratom resides in a gray area and is federally legal in the United States. However, some states have banned Kratom consumption for humans within their legal boundaries. You can find Kratom in most places as a dietary supplement in the United States market. However, as the kratom market is highly unregulated, the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) keeps a close watch on this sector for adulterated and harmful products. Federal agencies have been trying to ban the use and sale of Kratom for years but to no avail.
Kratom is banned in 6 states, namely, Alabama, Indiana, Arkansas, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Vermont. Apart from these states, some municipalities have also banned the use of Kratom, and those are San Diego in California, Denver in Colorado, Sarasota County in Florida, Jerseyville in Illinois, and Union county in Mississippi. However, respecting the demands of users and benefits of Kratom, some states have passed the KCPA bill. The KCPA, which stands for Kratom Consumer Protection Act, would protect the legality of Kratom in these states. These states are Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Georgia.
Side effects of Kratom:
Although Kratom treats Opioid addiction, some users also build tolerance for it over time. Once users reach a high tolerance level, they start using it in high dosage, leading to addiction. Side effects of Kratom include nausea, vomiting, and muscle aches. Overdose of Kratom can lead to death also, so it’s better to keep your dosage as low as possible.
Kratom is relatively young in the western health industry, and there isn’t enough scientific data available backing the claims of users. While the Mitragynine compound may help cope with opioid withdrawal, it also has side effects in the long run. Due to the lack of research and side effects associated with Kratom, government agencies have kept a hard stance on the use.
It’s better to keep track of the government notifications regarding the usage of Kratom if you want to try Kratom. At the same time, don’t travel in possession of Kratom to those states where Kratom is illegal. It may cause you unnecessary trouble and can make you serve prison time in addition to paying a hefty fine.
